Jordan William Fisher was born on April 24, 1994, in Trussville, Alabama. His parents are Rodney, a retired utility company employee, and Pat Fisher, a real estate events manager.

Growing up, Fisher was very skilled in gymnastics. He started with the sport at the age of 2 and also had ambitions to become a professional gymnast. However, fate had other plans for the young man. As a fifth-grader, he got a role in a school performance of School House Rock, Jr. which awakened his interest in musical theater. He then joined the youth program of the Red Mountain Theatre Company in his hometown of Birmingham. He performed there for several years and was eventually discovered by a talent scout who offered to become his agent. He got a contract at Disney, which marked the beginning of his showbiz career.
In 2009, Jordan Fisher had guest roles in many television series, including The Hustler, Skyrunner’s Testimonials, and the successful teen sitcom iCarly. In 2011 he enrolled at Jacksonville State University, but later that year he moved with his family to Los Angeles. In 2012 he was given a recurring role in the teen drama series The Secret Life of the American Teenager. He also had a role in the Disney Channel’s telefilm Teen Beach Movie (2013), followed by a guest role in the comedy series The Thundermans (2014).

While his acting career continued to flourish, Jordan Fisher also had time to work on his music career. In addition to his amazing vocals, the multi-talented star plays 6 different instruments: piano, guitar, bass, harmonica, French horn, and drums. In 2014, he recorded 3 songs for Radio Disney, and a year later he was signed to Hollywood Records.

The multi-talented artist contributed to the soundtracks of Liv and Maddie and Teen Beach 2, and also opened for Alicia Keys at the Apple Music Festival 2016 in London. Fisher also played a cover of the song “I’d Love to Change the World” for the miniseries When We Rise (2017).
Jordan Fisher’s biological mother was 16 years old when she had him. Consequently, he was adopted and raised by his maternal grandparents, Rodney and Pat Fisher. He has two siblings, Cory and Trinity, who were also adopted and raised by Mr. and Mrs. Fisher. Jordan’s birth mother struggled with substance abuse for many years and was therefore unable to develop a relationship with him and his siblings. There is no information about his biological father.
Does He Have a Girlfriend or Is He Gay?
Jordan Fisher is in a long-term relationship with his childhood sweetheart Ellie Woods. She is a student of clinical dietetics at the University of Alabama. The two grew up together in Birmingham and have known each other for a long time. Their relationship became exclusive in 2008 and they have remained inseparable ever since.
Based on Fisher’s clear dating history, it is safe to assume that he is heterosexual. His long-term relationship is a blatant indication that he has a crush on women. Nor has the Hollywood star made any claims that would suggest the opposite.
